My wife and I ( late 50's experienced paddlers) did the 3 day trip in Doubtful Sound with Bailey as our guide.
The scenery is spectacular, no other way to describe it. A multi-day kayak trip is really the only way to experience this wilderness and it was certainly the highlight of our 6 week trip to New Zealand.
Go Orange is an experienced highly professional operator, we were pleased with the equipment and the thoroughness of the pre-trip briefing.
Our guide Bailey made us feel completely safe during the trip- we had a challenging second day with high winds and rain - she tailored the paddling to the conditions so that we were never in a difficult situation. Kudos to her!!
This is not a "glamping" trip (although the composting toilet was welcome). You will experience all that the sound has to offer including sandflies and rain, but the payoff is one of the best wilderness experiences we have ever had.
I highly recommend the trip to anyone who wants to go the extra mile.
